  1. Cant login

    I have experienced this on and off today as well, but have managed to log on ok after a couple of attempts. I think it's happened before and I put it down to software updates/development. I don't think there's anything major to be concerned about.
  2. Images Sold in February (Max. 1 per day)

    What a great capture Wim. A sea of happy faces but each expression so individual..
  3. Post your positive results here :)

    OOoooh yeah! Feels nice....
  4. DACS payment

    This was completely off my radar so a pleasant surprise to see $15 added to my balance! Is there any way of finding out which image/usage it relates to? Thanks Alamy!
  5. Another goal met

    Yes there is clearly a debate to be had about quantity vs quality, but I don't really understand your motives for bringing that issue to this thread. The OP has reached a significant milestone and I can't see anything negative about sharing and recognising such an achievement. This forum is one of the few that has managed to maintain a community spirit and is all the better for it. Communities support each other and are not solely motivated by perfectionism. In my opinion at least
  6. I totally understand the frustration but I don't believe Alamy is to blame. It's a competitive market and (in my opinion) Alamy would be foolish to pretend otherwise. Capitalism and economic forces are the real cause. Personally, I would be more concerned if Alamy refused to adapt to evolving market dynamics. After all there is no shortage of names consigned to the corporate graveyard. Alamy earn a ℅ of sales so our interests are fully aligned, and that's good enough for me.
  7. Can't search on Alamy using Google???

    I have the same problem this morning using Chrome. I can type in the search box, but pressing the magnifying glass does nothing.
  8. Words fail me!

    This is an interesting point. My 8 year old became very familiar with another stock agency name which turned it to be because his teacher used watermarked images in class. What is the position on watermarked image use? They are low resolution and advertise the agency. Are they allowed to be used?
  9. Getty buys Corbis

    Alamy/shutterstock would not surprise me at all..
  10. Shutterstock/Stockimo

    I'm assuming these the them... Stockimo on Shutterstock
  11. So, how was November?

    3 sales for $132 gross - enought to keep me happy and motivated.
  12. I have seen quite a few online newspapers inserting a twitter feed image into the body of a news article. They don't reproduce the image and credit Twitter, they simply display the image posted by another user in a twitter feed-style window. There is an example here. I've used this because I have noticed the photogographer (Alex Florence) offering these images for sale to newspapers via Twitter today. Persumably the twitter feed approach enables the paper to illustrate the article with the image for free? Is that right? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/11988783/Pupils-taken-to-hospital-after-collapsing-at-school-latest.html James
  13. No thumbnails anymore

    It looks just like Shutterstock. Just waiting for the merger announcement now... ;-)
